Democracies Wanted: Biden’s Chance to Counter Autocracy

Renew Democracy Initiative

Location: Online

Global democracy is facing its greatest threats since the Cold War. Freedom House reports that for the 15th consecutive year, dictatorships are on the rise. Please join the Renew Democracy Initiative on December 13th, at 6:15 PM EST for a discussion on how democracies can unite to turn the tide of authoritarianism after President Biden’s international “Summit for Democracy”. What impact will the summit have on the fight for global freedom? How can free nations come together to fight back against encroaching authoritarianism?

John Avlon, anchor for CNN’s morning news segment New Day, will host this conversation with U.S. Senator Chris Coons of Delaware, RDI and Human Rights Foundation chairman Garry Kasparov, and Iranian-American journalist and broadcaster Masih Alinejad.
